A Victoria man is in disbelief after winning big playing BC/49.

Roger Dhur said he was in complete disbelief upon realizing he matched 5/6+ numbers to land him $75,000 from the BC/49 draw on December 9, 2020.

“My first thought was holy smokes,” Dhur recalled.

The Victoria resident purchased his ticket at the Westshore Town Centre on Jacklin Road and first found out he was a winner while checking the draw results online.

He then went to a retailer to verify his ticket.

“Sure enough, it was a $75,000 winner! It feels so good,” he added.

Dhur is excited to share the news with his family and will put his prize away into savings as he ponders what to do with his little windfall.
